So when everyone else was stocking up on toilet paper, I stocked up on my wonderful organic spices; cayanne pepper, chilli flakes, hot curry powder, ginger, black cumin, cinnamon, tumeric, black pepper and anise. i also made sure I had plenty of fresh garlic, ginger and tumeric.
A few years ago our family had a chilli every-day for the whole winter and not one of us had a cold or flu type symptoms the entire time. So this year while we are all staying put at home - we are eating curries!
Three of my favourite spices for combating winter ills include tumeric, star anise and chilli . In the next few posts I will talk about some important health benefits of these spices.
